In my attempt to upgrade from Win 2K to XP - the installation stops and is looking for mmrtkrnl.sys. My understanding from reading web pages is that this is a file that may be infected. This is a Real Player file?

Now...what do I do? If I cancel - It reboots and restarts the install and returns in a loop. I did a browse and found a file - but I then got a crash screen. Then - back to the loop.

I can not start in 2k mode - even though it is offered at boot - it is missing a file. I can not boot in safe mode - I suppose because I am half way thru the XP install?

I am thinking this file mmrtkrnl.sys needs to be fixed at boot.

I am stuck in installation mode.

Please help!
